I love this book because I think the watercolor that accompanies these wonderful poems is absolutely beautiful. This title is one in a series meant to introduce great poetry to children, and I think it does a good job. On each page is an introduction of things to think about while reading the following poem, giving the reader a chance to really connect with the words. And in case any young readers need someone to write a report on, the book also includes a great bio section about this award winning poet.
